Drinking Water Before Pranayam ?

by Neerja
(Delhi)

Have not been able to start my Alom Vilom because I need half a cup of mild tea, after a glass of water in the morning. Can I start with Alom Vilom after my tea and water? Is it essential that I clear my bowels before I can start Alom Vilom? Can I do Alom Vilom any time, any where when ever I get some time say after a gap of 1 hour of my meals?



Answer

1. You can drink water after getting up and then drink your tea. Wait for 30 minutes before starting yoga.

2. You can try to clear your bowels after taking your tea. Even if you are not able to clear the bowels occasionally, you can proceed with yoga practice/ pranayama. However, in case of chronic constipation, you must treat your constipation problem.

3. You can do alom vilom anytime provided three hours have elapsed since the last meal and half an hour has elapsed since your last cup of tea/ coffee.

Hope it helps.
